2. MAGNETISM Magnetism is a class of physical phenomena that includes forces exerted by magnets on other magnets.
4. FOR EVERY NORTH, THERE IS A SOUTH Every magnet has at least one north pole and one south pole. By convention, we say that the magnetic field lines leave the North end of a magnet and enter the South end of a magnet. If you take a bar magnet and break it into two pieces, each piece will again have a North pole and a South pole. If you take one of those pieces and break it into two, each of the smaller pieces will have a North pole and a South pole. No matter how small the pieces of the magnet become, each piece will have a North pole and a South pole. S N S N S N

6. USING A COMPASS TO FIND DIRECTIONS A compass needle always points to the Earths North Pole. Some birds use the Earths magnetism to find directions. 8
7. NO MONOPOLES ALLOWED It has not been shown to be possible to end up with a single North pole or a single South pole, which is a monopole ("mono" means one or single, thus one pole). S N Note: Some theorists believe that magnetic monopoles may have been made in the early Universe. So far, none have been detected.
